    I strongly recommend against joining this guild. The leader doesn’t really know what he’s doing. For example, in TW we just lost because he broke up all his strong characters with synergy to put them into weird teams (Bastilla leading Jawas, JKR under Hera lead, GMY under Finn lead, etc). I tried to explain to him how they would be better together and he kicked me out ten minutes before TW ended.

    I also saw him giving advice to a new player telling him to use Teebo for the C3P0 event, which is terrible advice. Steer far away from this guild - you will get bad advice in chat and if you make the leader mad (not hard to do) he will kick you out and make you miss out on rewards.

    Are you sure we are speaking of the same Whills?

    Whilly DM'd me in game last week for some roster advice and seemed like a genuinely nice fella who was somewhat knowledgeable and seeking to round out his roster.

    I certainly couldn't see him placing such poorly composed squads in TW and sabotaging this guild he has worked so hard to create. Nor can I see him kicking someone prior to the guild getting rewards.

    Join his guild and find out the hard way. This is totally something he would do.

    You've been supportive on a few occasions, Bubba; I appreciate that. I've been playing this game every day for like 3 years. It's a little strange that anyone would think what I have done in that time has been for their satisfaction or approval. Perhaps more strange is that someone could be so myopic as not to see they aren't meant to control another person's experiences. I'll tell you what though: come into my guild being disrespectful to me or its members and you will get exited. It's that simple. And...we must have gotten at least 5 new members today. I lost count, really. Personally, I don't think I even needed to start this thread; I just needed to play, exercise patience, and be happy. It'd be nice if everyone could do that...

    Hey, no problem buddy :)

    I'm going to give you a bit of unsolicited advice here, please feel free to take it or leave it my friend... As someone who is part of a leadership team that has grown a guild from 53 mill to over 400 mill GP over 5 years, it has been my experience that running a successful guild is like running a small business while still remembering that it's a game and to have fun...

    Booting someone should never be taken lightly and, as frustrating as it is when guildmates don't pull their weight, much like workers in a business that don't pull their weight they deserve their "severence package" which, in this case, would be their TW rewards... It costs you and your guild nothing to allow them to have them and it will call your leadership into question and make you look petty if you deny them those rewards..

    You mentioned nearsightedness and that it is strange that folks should think that what you have done is for their satisfaction or approval. Well, that's part of a guild leader's job. You can't expect 49 other other people to join your guild and do exactly what you say without question. That would be you imposing your Whills (pun intended) on them and controlling their personal experiences... If you do that, to quote the wise and powerful Obi-Wan Kenobi, "You have become the very thing you sought to destroy"...

    Also, think of raids as "employee appreciation day", they are rewards for all of the work your entire guild put into getting the raid tickets to launch them. Launching them unannounced and excluding many of them is tantamount to telling them their contribution is for nothing... Not having the entire guild being able to access the raid also hold the collective back... More rewards for everyone in the guild = stronger healthier guild as well.

    5 new members may sound great when phrased in that context, but that means 5 had to leave to make that room... No "business" will ever be successful while sporting a 10% employee turnover :)

    This is not a business, it is my house. The turnover could be 98% and still be fine. Some get rewards, others do not. It all depends on who among them are visitors and who among them are fam. Occasionally, we get trespassers. Yes, I'd prefer those get none. If you want your own rules in that regard, that's why you'd have your own house.

    Whills, you put this team on defense. You would be wise to listen more to others who are trying to help you.

    Help me do what? No advice was sought in this regard. I adjust my squads often, actually. Experimenting with various configurations is one of the more entertaining aspects of the game for me. Although I wouldn't be likely to use this one anywhere other than TW, the team you are showing here absorbed multiple attacks on the front line before being defeated. You chose to show the undisturbed state instead of the eventual outcome which implies your reason for doing so was likely to present me or my guild unfavorably from that moment. I hope you are able to find a better way of going about life.

    I an not sure what you are defending. Maybe you should clarify.

    We both know this isn’t true. The opponent never attacked this team because they were easily able to win with just the points they got for setting a full defense. Unless, of course, they attacked it in the last 10 minutes of TW after you had kicked me out.

    I can’t decide if I’m surprised or completely unsurprised that I have to spell this out to you.

    In one post, you decried someone as “myopic” for thinking they could control someone else’s experiences. In another post you brazenly state “my house, my rules”.

    So basically you’re saying “woe betide anyone who dares questions my actions or makes a suggestion”, whilst simultaneously saying “it’s my way or the highway”. Launching raids with no join phase, dictating which TW teams are attacked - these are all controlling the experiences of your guild mates, but that’s OK because it’s you doing the controlling.

    It is bordering on sociopathic to continue to run a guild based on the underlying principle that it is inconceivable that anyone who joins your guild can know more about the game than you do.

    But like you say, your house, your rules.

    I am the leader of a guild, yes. I am very glad we can rely on those who know to clarify that. Hey, one of our respectful former members says he wants to come back after he's done with some Territory Battles. That's fantastic, everybody! ^_^

    What do you do when 1/4 of those in your guild who join TW neither attack or set defense?

    Hi interested readers I joined this guild about a month ago. So far this is the most active guild I have ever been in. 41 out of 47 members joined the TW. The chat is very active and the leadership is by far the best with helpful in sites for all lvl players. If we have room and your looking for some help maybe just maybe you can join this guild I call home.

    41 out of 47 isn't 100 percent and isn't effective at winning tw. Glad it's the most active you have joined, but thay isn't the most active guild. Period. If it isn't 100% it isn't the best you can do.

    Have fun being in a guild that slacks and has a leader who seems to be full of him self.

    It sounds like you are happy in Whilly's guild, which is great!

    That being said, if 40 members join a TW and, as Whilly said, only 30 members actually do anything, this is REALLY hurting you guys.... The TW matchup algorithm is going to match you with a guild that has a similar amount of GP as the sum of the GP of your joined members... That dead wait is a huge anchor!

    Good luck, will be watching your progress...Whilly, get the axe out!

    Don't let them discourage you, James. We are shaping up to be a dedicated crew. A lot of members were able to make the upgrades they've been waiting for this week. We can make other adjustments as needed. Be well!

    I am all about options. So long as I am free to do what I want with the characters I have worked for, I am ok with mixed results. Considering the last time I checked, I was surrounded by GLs, Sith Empire and GAS in my Arena, I don't see any reason I should feel less insightful. I will achieve more when the time is right. Now is time for the enjoyment of play. Can't think of any other sane reason someone would be on this thing for...actually.
